André Valério’s Biography

Brazilian multi-instrumentalist André Valério is in high demand as a guitarist, composer and arranger. Mr. Valerio’s versatility has taken him around the world to perform in important music festivals and venues in Canada, the Netherlands, Mexico and Brazil. His interest in music began at a very young age after listening to Brazil’s most enduring musical genres, Bossa Nova. Inspired to compose and arrange since as a teenager, André studied classical guitar, jazz and latin music among other styles. His deep passion for music led him to learn six instruments: acoustic guitar, piano, mandolin, cavaquinho, bass, and electric guitar.
